an investigator from Miami and
Police Chief H. W. Griffin and
Adams said his investigation
was made at the request of the
Governor's office after it was re-
lorted that racial strife was in
the making here. Adams said his
investigation found that Nich-

the governor's office and that all
trouble was instigated by him
Adams said that after his in-
vestigation, he found only the
best of relations' between Port
St. Joe's citizens and he offered

The City Commission has accept-
ed an offer from the Florida De-
.velopment Commission to prepare
a master plan of development for
the City of Port St. Joe.
The offer came out of a special

-the Development Commission.
Information from the office of
Housing, Urban Development in
Atlanta, Ga., has informed the City
'that at the present rate of grant-
iing of funds from their office, they
have a backlog of requests- that
will last them for 27 years.
The Development Commission
has informed the City that other
sources are available, but that 'a
"Master Plan" must be prepared
,for presentation for a fund request.
The 'Master Plan" would include
provisions for water, sewer, golf
courses, tennis courts, parks, air-
ports and every facet of Com-
munity development for which out-
side funds would be needed. -
The Development Commission of-
fered to do this plan and the City
requested that they do so.
ROAD WORK STARTED
Street Commission Robert L.
Holland told- the City Board Tues-
.day night that work has begun on'
;paving several streets in the North
Port St. Joe area. The work got un-
derway -last .Thursday. ,
This paving is'being done on a,
joint County-City venture with the
City providing materials and. some
labor and the County providing
labor and necessary machinery.
' As an addition to the paving pro-
gram, the Commission -voted, at the
suggestion of- Holland, to request,
the County to also pave the alleys
between Reid and Williams and
Reid and Monument between First
and Fifth Streets.
Provisions were made in the
present budget for this -paving
work .and the City will attempt
to get it done while County .equip-
ment is' in the city.
Commissioner Holland reported
to the Board Tuesday night that a
large drain ditch has been started
that will affect the Eastern section
of Port St. Joe. The ditch is being
constructed by the County Mosqui-
to Control Division.
The new ditch will begin at
Highway 71, alongside the new
Courthouse and will proceed south
to Depot Creek, following a natur-
al fall. The ditch is expected to
ease the drainage problem for nor-
mally high ground all along their
Eastern-boundary of the City. EWa-l

lamy Circle area.
This ditch has been planned for

Quincy Firm Will Construct
First Phase of PenminsulaPark,
Development of the new St.
Joseph State Park took a giant
step forward this week when the
State Cabinet authorized the
Florida Park Board to enter into
contract 'with a Quincy firm for
a $1 25 591 construction project,
-at the park.
State Parks Director Bill Mil-
ler said plans are to begin con-
struction in March, with a late
summer completion date.
Miller said t4e new park, lo-
cated on St. Joseph Peninsula
near Port St. Joe, will be opened
to the public on a limited use
basis as soon as construction is
"Although all facilities are not
scheduled to be completed until
late summer," Miller said, "we
would like the public to begin
having use of at least the beach
area before that time."
He added, "We hope that the
project will be finished sooner
than the completion date set by
the contract, so that the public
can enjoy all the benefits of this
park this summer."
B. and H. Construction Com-
pany of Quincy submitted the
low bid for construction of. wa-
ter systems, an entrance station
with office, equipment shelter
and shop, a beach bathhouse,
two campers' convenience build-
ings, and a marina.
The construction project is
part of a $162,533 construction
program underway at this park
for the 1965-67 biennium.
This contract is for only par-
tial construction of the complete
park plan. The State Park Ser-
vice has asked for a budget allo-
cation pf $655,000 from the up-
coming, Legislature, which would
leap-frog the construction time-
table ahead by about five or six
years. Local park interests have
already gone to work to try and
obtain this large budget, alloca-
tion to get speedier" completion
of the entire Peninsula park.

Legislators Put Us In A Bind
Everyone in the State of Florida woke up Thursday
morning, two weeks ago, to fimd that the Federal Courts
had reapportioned -the State's senate and representative
districts to suit themselves.
This was expediently done under the guise of "one
man-one vote". And ironically enough, not one man in
Florida had a thing to do with it. Not one man in Florida
had cast a vote for the three'men who created the reappor-
tionment. Not one man in Florida can cast a yote against
what three appointed men have done, nor can these three
appointed men be touched by one Florida voter.
"One man-dne vote"? Uh uh! Three men one vote and
that one vote is final.
Almost immediately, several legislators of the
State came up in arms against the decision of the courts.
Righteous indignation was the order of the day. And many
of these same protesters only recently stated, "Let the
Courts reapportion the state don't saddle us with this
,We lay the blame for reapportionment muddle right
squarely at the feet of these legislators. They claimed they
didn't know what the courts expected by way of a formula.,
But, it's a funny thing, almost everybody else in the State
did. They expressed confidence that their plans would meet
Court approval, But almost everyone else in the. State had
Those recent' arguments for a unicameral system a
few weeks back may now gain some support. We have
down-graded our representation by legislators not willing
to meet their responsibilities to the point where three ap-
pointed men must do their work. A smaller unicameral
Legislature would at least save, money and probably would
get just as much work done.
Frankly we prefer the weighted vote system with
every county having at least one representative with a
vote commensurate with his county's population and the
Senate being apportioned similar to its present status.
Then at least everybody would have a voice in the
, Legislature and the other house would serve as a safeguard
against one section of the State carrying more than its
.share of weight.
But with the present system of procrastination, we
have a situation where the people of Florida have nothing
whatsoever to say .about their type or amount of represen-

tillable land will have to be used for food and fiber pro-
duction. The inherent efficiency of the American farmer
will be needed as never before. It should be recognized
once and for all that a free market in agriculture, as else-
where, is the most productive market.
The Nominating Game
Every four years, right after the off-year congressional
elections, the political pundits begin to play the "pick the
nominee" guessing game.
For the Republicans they give us the four R's: Rom-
ney, Reagan, Rhodes and Rockefeller. And Nixon. On the
other side of the ticket the consensus is that President
Johnson can contain' the obvious aspirations of the junior
senator Bobby Kennedy, unless the so-called "credibility
gap" widens to become completely incredible.. Then there
is Lurlen's husband waiting in the wings to run as a possi-
Now another name has been thrown into the hopper,
that of General Curtis LeMay. It seems that a group of
Republicans approached the General recently and urged
him to bid for the nomination. The Washington news-
weekly, "Human Events", interviewed the former Air Force
Chief of Staff and builder of the Strategic Air Command.
He has not, he said, made any commitment to try for the
office, but adds, "that the world situation being what it is,
the trouble in Asia and the problems there and the Middle
East about to flare up, perhaps a President with some
military background might be helpful." '
He declared that he is "not satisfied with the progress
we have made in VietnarI, and I don't think anyone else is
either." General LeMay takes a hard line on the war,
think we should "go as far as necessary to stop the aggre-
sion against the south." He calls for "hot pursuit" when
the enemy slips into Laos or Cambodia. He sums up the
situation this way: "The only way to stop this aggression
in the south is to make the North Vietnamese want to stop
it. And you make them want to stop it by making it so
expensive that they can't afford it any longer."
Some weeks before the speculation about General Le-
May appeared, there was a report that a group of Repub-
licans are recalling with satisfaction the success the party
had not many years back with a military man as a candi-
date for the Presidency.
And it seems clear that some Republican spokesmen
think the country would rather switch and fight in Viet-
nam come, 1968.
Hunting Season -
men hesitant about racking up
their firearms, are rapidly ap-
proaching limited targets for, the
remainder of the winter, accord-
ing to W. T. McBroom, Chairman, I
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
The Commission chairman noted
that deer, bear and turkey hunting
has closed statewide and pointed
'out that all migratory bird hunting
has closed also. Quail and squirrel
hunting will continue through Feb-
ruary 26, except in the 16 counties
of Northwest Florida where hunt-
ing for quail and squirrel will be
open through March 5.
Turkey hunters were advised
not to put their guns away as the
spring turkey gobbler season opens
March 11 through March 26 in
that portion of the state south of
State Road 50, and March 25 thru
April 9 in that portion north of
State Road 50. During the spring
turkey gobbler season only gob-
blers will be legal game and hunt-
ing will be allowed from one-half
hour before sunrise to 12:00 noon.
Hunters will be allowed one gob-
bler per day and two per season.
"After the spring turkey gobbler
season," McBroom said, "hunting
opportunities will be confined to
rabbit, raccoon, fox, bobcat and
opossum. Hunters may also take
unprotected birds such as crow
and English sparrows. All eagles,
hawks and owls are fully protected
and hunters should exercise ex-
treme caution and not shoot at
any large unidentified bird."
McBroom advised hunters to
consult their summary of hunting
rules and regulations for ready
reference on seasons. One certain
way to know the regulations is to
study the summary and to contact
local wildlife officers in case of

A telephone call from State Attorney J. Frank Adams and
many others last week said "thanks" for last week's observances
in this space. Adams said that his office had conducted an exhaus-
tive study of Gulf County after claims made by one man two weeks
ago, and that he could find no better relations among the people
anywhere than he had found in Gulf County. Adams also compli-
mented the people of Gulf County all of the people for
their sensible attitude taken in light of the one-man disturbance.
Adams said it was reassuring to see all of the people in this
area joining together to make certain that the trouble stopped
with the removal of its instigator.

undoubtedly clouded Governor Kirk's sense of equilibrium. First
he announced and then proceeded to name a man to head up
the State Road Department, a man who knew something about
roads and road building. Now, more recently, he has caused
.a communique to come from that department that the old yard-
'stick of determining the "need" of roads that of political
pay-off will no longer be applied. Road work will now be
accomplished on the basis of need.

For years now, Bob Sike's weekly "Newsletter" is filled with
the things we like to hear in this part of the State. His conserva-
tive notes in the "Newsletter" go right down our alley.
But more than one has asked the question, "Why doesn't he
say something like that in Congress let them know how we
feel in this part of the nation!"
Sike's got up on his hind legs, reared up his head and declared
that the civil rights commission should resign and told the Housl
the commission's recommendation for a racial balance law (in
schools) "is undoubtedly one of the most stupid ever made in the
name of public education."
We agree with Mr. Sikes. It IS pretty stupid to make the state-
ment that a Negro can only get an education in an integrated
school. We have to assume that the statement means that the
whites can get an education only in an integrated 'school also.
We contend that a child gets a better education in a school in
familiar surroundings whether it is integrated or not. We
also contend that it is time for more attention to be paid to the
education of children and less attention paid as to whether the
child in the next desk is colored or white.

New Information Concerning Doctor
Bills and Medicare Regulations
Medicare beneficiaries who had
doctor bills in the last three
months of 1966 that were used to
meet all or part of their $50.00 de-
ductible may count these same bills
toward their deductible for this
year, according- to John V. Carey,
District Manager of the Panama
City Social Security office.
Under the medical insurance
part of medicare, Carey explained,
a beneficiary is responsible for the
first $50.00 in a calendar year for
covered services before medicare
starts paying 80 percent of the rest
of the bills. Beneficiaries should
save their doctor bills and other
bills for services covered by med-
ical insurance until they reach
It is particularly important,
then, for beneficiaries who receiv-
ed no payment under medical in-
surance in 1966 because they did
not meet their $50.00 deductible,
to save their bills for October, No-
vember and December, Carey
stressed. If you have bills to show
for the last three months, you may
not have to pay all of the $50.00
deductible for this year.
This is a special rule that applies
to individuals who do not' have
$50.00 worth of covered expenses
in a year, or whose covered ex-
penses do not reach $50.00 until
the last three months of the year.
"In both situations", Carey said,
"any bills you had in the last three
months in the year that count to-
ward your $50.00 deductible may
be counted again for the next year
If a person did not file a medi-
care claim for his doctor bills in-
curred after July 1, 1966, he
should submit those bills with the
first claim he files this year. The
local Social Security Office will be
glad to assist any one in filing a
claim under the medical insurance
part of medicare.
Those persons having a question
about this or any other part of
Social Security should contact their
nearest Social Security Office. The
office for this area is located at
1135 Harrison Avenue, Panama
City, Florida 32401. The telephone
number is 763-5331. The office is
open Monday through Thursday
from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on
Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

SThus Saith The Lord"

This week, Lord willing, we shall
continue our study of harmony in
the home. We shall continue with
the Biblical instructions of the fa-

Turn in your Bibles to Ephesians
6:4 where we read: "And, ye fa-
thers,: provoke not your children to
wrath: but bring them up in the
nurture and admonition of the
The word "provoke" means to
rouse to wrath. This is done in
several ways! Striking a child in

This is the negative part of the
God also gives the positive side
of this problem.
In this verse we find instruction
on how to bring up children. The
word "nurture" refers to our train-
ing by 'act as well, as discipline.
We should be living examples of.
what we teach. This includes the
whole training and educating of a
child in relation to mind and mor-
als. This word includes commands,
admonition, reproof and punish-
"Admonition" means to train by
word. This includes a word of en-
couragement when. it is needed or
a word of blame when that is need-
Further instructions can be
found in Cdiossians 3:21 where we
read: "Fathers, provoke not your
children to- anger, lest they be dis-
.cuoraged". The sum total of all
.that these teachings include has
been stated by two fine men of
God. H. C. G. Moule makes the
following statement: "do not chal-
lenge their resistance by unwise
and exacting interference, so dif-
ferent from the steady firmness of
thoughtful and responsible affec-
tion, that they may not be' out of
heart, discouraged under the chil-
ling feeling that it is impossible
to please, that the word of praise
is never heard, that confidence is
never reposed in their affection
H. A. Ironside gives this warn-
ing: 'Tarental rule may be of
such a character as to fill the grow-
ing boy or girl with indignation
and contempt instead of drawing
out the young heart in love and
obedience. How easy it is, when
coming to manhood, to forget the
feelings of a child, and so to im-
plant in the hearts of the little
ones resentment instead of tender
Nowhere do these men of God
say to throw away the rod of cor-
rection. This is a part of training
a child. The father is to use com-
mon sense, good judgment and
love in bringing up a child. Chris-
tian fathers are to be toward their

Buzzett Tells Career Day Students
That Pharmacy Offers Good Future
Few professions offer more po-
tential job opportunities than phar-
macy, according to Gannon Buzzett
of Buzzett's Drug Store, speaking
before a High School assembly
Friday morning. "From teaching to
research, to the retail pharmacy,
there are untold opportunities
awaiting our youth in pharmacy,"
he told the students. He particular-
ly singled out the rise of speciali-
zation in pharmacy which has led
to broader employment horizons.
While four out of five students,
following their four-year college
course, choose retail pharmacy as
their field of activity, many others
are turning to hospital pharmacy,
research, teaching and product de-
velopment. "No matter what spec-
ialized interest the graduate may
have, he is almost assured of a
place in which to practice his pro-
fession. Even sales and' promotion-
al work has high appeal for our
graduates, as a result of the intro-
duction of new medication. These
young men and women spend their
children as their Heavenly Father
is toward them.

educated in Clahoun and Gulf
County Schools. I worked on
the Apalachicola-Northern Rail-
road until Jun:e 6, 1956, and am
now serving my third term in
the House of Representatives.'
I am Chairman of, the Labor
Committee and serve on the Salt
Water Conservation, Public Safe-

and State Governmental Reor-

mittees, which are five of the
best committees in the Houtse of

on the Labor Committee and the
Salt Water Conservation Com-

In the 1965 Session I introduc-
ed a constitutional amendment
to increase HIfmestead Exemp-
tion from $5,000 to $10,000 with
100% evaluation staring us in

mandate. We certainly need this
amendment passed; and if I; am
re-elected, this will be one of my
major projects in the 1967 Ses-
Last May the citizens of Gulf

biggest vote that a man ever re-

Flint Waterway have been releas-
ed by the Army Corps of Engin-
eers.. Colonel R. C. Marshall, Dis-
trict Engineer, said that coinpila-

Paid Pol. Adv. by Campaign Treasurer
The guest speaker for the occa-
sion was Charles B. Smith, local
historian. Mr. Smith pointed out
to' the group that the fortunes and
history of the area, both past and
present, had been closely associat-
ed with the water due to the geo-
graphic location of the area. He
touched upon the hardships en-
countered by the early mariners
and used selected excerpts from
three primary source works of his-
tory to illustrate his theme.
Smith quoted from Pierre Fran-
cois Xavier de Charlevoix's "Voy-
age to North America", which gave
an account of the French traveller
historian's visit to- the Spanish
Fort San Joseph in 1722; from Ber-
nard Roman's, "A Concise History
of East and, West Florida", pub-
lished in New York in 1775 which
gave a detailed description for
mariners entering' St. Joseph Bay.
The last work read was excerpts
from the diary of a local citizen,
the late Charles A. McClellan df
Port St. Joe. The McClellan diary
written at age 17 was kept during
a sea voyage on a three-masted
sooner in 1908 from Apalachicola
to Belize, capital of British Hon-
duras in Central America.

SAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAFF
I have been receiving your news-
paper, The Star, from a friend, Ed
Anderton who subscribed about a
year or so ago. He has enjoyed
your paper very much and has
asked me to write and ask you a
question which he has had in
mind for some time.
We, for I'm curious to know also,
would like to know what these
words, "Etaoin Shrdlu" mean. Per-

would be interested in knowing
this also. We would appreciate a
reply from you concerning this
I would like to say, Tefore clos-

many editorials you have written.
